The Philadelphia 76ers announced details for the “76ers Crossover: Art Exhibition, presented by Reebok”, a free art exhibition running Saturday, November 16 through Tuesday, November 19 at Philadelphia’s Fitler Club located at 24 South 24th Street.
“Philadelphia is not only a basketball city, but it is a city with a deep, vibrant and diverse culture,” Philadelphia 76ers President Chris Heck said. “With ‘76ers Crossover,’ we aim to celebrate the intersection of basketball throughout the city and across the globe with all of the cultural lifestyle elements that make Philadelphia spectacular – from the arts, to music and fashion, to cuisine.”
Over 200 pieces of art produced by artists from 13 different countries will be displayed. The exhibit is designed to showcase the crossover between basketball, art, and the city of Philadelphia as well as illustrate the history of Sixers basketball.
Throughout the run of the exhibit artists will also be live painting all white Reebox classics. The exhibit will also launce a silent auction via the 76ers app where fans can bid on various pieces, including a specially painted one-of-a-kind Red Bull cooler.
A portion of the net proceeds from the “76ers Crossover: Art Exhibition, presented by Reebok” auction will benefit the Sixers Youth Foundation.
